Both ankles and most of the feet are modern restorations.
Copy of a Greek statue of the 3rd century B.C.
The nude goddess was shown in a complex twisting pose, crouching at her bath and turning toward a playful Eros behind her. As with many Hellenistic works, the viewer is invited to circle the statue and to enjoy it from all sides. While the original was probably an important votive dedication in a sanctuary, the many Roman copies were primarily decorative works placed in private villas or public baths.
